I think my original post was blasting Audi for the oil consumption so i presume you were speaking out about the folks that blasted me for speaking ill of Audi. I agree with your post 100%. Like you, I would NEVER buy an Audi. Lease and turn back. My wife loves the car and I will lease... only so long as the lease period and mileage is within bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage. Further, I would probably want the required periodic maintenance during the warranty period thrown in as well. However, if this maintenance is just oil changes, I might just pay for this if the charge of included maintenance far exceeded the cost of oil changes.
BTW, I was told that this "normal" oil consumption in Audi and VW
2.0 ltr engines is widespread. Audi- get rid of the 2.0 ltr turbo and up the displacement by at least a 1/2 liter to yield at least 250 hp with a normally-aspirated, well-engineered engine.

When I purchased a new Audi a6 2.7t in 2000, the 3 year warranty included in the purchase price of $42,500 featured a bumper to bumper warranty repair and scheduled oil changes every 8000 miles. Appears with the newest models that scheduled maintenance costs extra. In any case, without buying an OPTIONAL extended 3 yr-50,000 mile service contract--this car would have literally bankrupted me with all the incredibly expensive repairs that were needed to keep the car going.
If Audi is communicating to you that a quart of oil consumption every 1200 miles is standard on many of their newest engines--then they really have a serious problem with engineering of these cars!
